New images that reveal the look of the upcoming 2014 Kia Forte have been unveiled ahead of the car’s official debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Autoshow in November.
The Forte seems to be taking the design cues from the upcoming Kia Quoris flagship sedan. That includes the company’s new gaping grille, and a swooping rear end, which is currently seen on the Optima sedan as well.
Kia’s updated Forte is poised to take on the highly competitive compact car segment, including the brand new Dodge Dart, which boasts a stylish look, and can get 40 mpg on the highway.
Expect the new Forte to come in the same variety of body styles including a hatch and coupe. Take a look at the gallery below to see the rest of the sketches of the new Forte.
